It's probably not the newest one then. I got it pretty soon after he released it.


Ok. I'm not sure what version I had before, I'll have to check. I was just looking for a complete posted install like you provided as I wasn't sure if I had my script set up correctly since I had never used greasemonkey previously.

For anyone just now joining us, I'll point out that I've written a Chrome extension for Steam that makes it a little easier to use.

Thank you. I wouldn't have seen it otherwise. Chrome is my primary browser, so I'll check it out.

It's terrible do not buy it, please.

Spent a few hours playing it a months ago, after gettign it fro man indie gala

Repetitive enemies and patterns, heck second boss looks the same as the first with more spam from it. pretty much boils down to emp(the bombish thing ) spamming as much as possible some times can last till you pick up another stack of 5.

crummy hitbox + instant death asteroids on one level didn't help..

one thing I did like is the 7th or so boss is basically a ring of parts rotating around you.

better options

sine mora
Only game picked up during this sale so far, its pretty system feels like it could have been a bit better done.

http://store.steampo...1_7_suggest__13

gundemonium collection, loved the third games system
http://store.steampo....com/sub/11712/

eXceed Complete Pack, haven't palyed but have seen recommended before
http://store.steampo...?snr=1_5_9__403

maybe even SPAZ, though not a shump
http://store.steampo...com/app/107200/


Good to know, thanks for the feedback. Sine Mora I'm eternally on the fence with, presentation is amazing, but randomized power-ups really hurt. That may still be a last day pickup because it's still cheaper than I'd ever end up getting it on the 360 but I may also hold off until a summer sale on it. The Exceed collection will almost certainly be picked up last day. Might bite on the third gundemonium game as the first two being horizontal shooters with oversized sprites is a harder sell for me.

Now to invest in that wall mount for my tv that will let me rotate it for my various vertical shooters on steam and 360. One downside of everything going widescreen, vertically oriented games get obscene borders on them.

Here is a copy of the newest code for Firefox users with Greasemonkey:

http://pastebin.com/c6p3vDxF

This is version 0.3

Anyone good with code might notice I'm trying to update the "total cost of all games" in a pack with the actual cost of the games you do not own, which should make it easier to determine if buying a pack is worth it or not, and if so how much you'll save.

Is Torchlight 2 any good?



It's the best of the recent Diablo clones. As a pseudo-indie the graphics aren't the best, it doesn't have full voice acting, and there isn't much in the way of a story but for a loot driven ARPG it does the job and shakes off a lot of the cons of D3 such as required connection to Battle.net, no LAN play, no moddability, etc.

Tastefully bad. I like it.

I need to get back to Mission Runwaying again soon.

I'm still bummed I couldn't get the ENB series to work with it, but then again that would actually make it look decent probably lose the appeal.

This is really off-topic, but is this a good monitor? My PS3 3D Display crapped out after only a month. I want no less than 24 inches and it needs HDMI, integrated speakers, and preferably to be less than $200. Suggestions are welcome. There isn't really a good section of the site to ask this and I figure you guys would know better than anyone else.

Well I mentioned this to you before, but my monitor is Asus. Had it for a couple of years now. I like Asus and find they make good monitors.

I don't have that exact model but the Amazon reviews are good and the Newegg ones too. Seems like a decent deal to me.

Newegg has it for the same price after you enter a $10 off promo code in.

Be sure to send the rebate in too.

I would buy Mission Runway if there was some way to show I didn't own it. There are some games where I just would not want to show that I own :lol:. This is of course one of them.

Save yourself $10, but I actually found this before I realized you had posted a link in your original message. :) Glad to see it's the exact same monitor. Asus or Samsung. That is all.

I'll probably go with Amazon since I have gift cards there. Shipping doesn't matter because I have both Shoprunner and Prime. Are there any better deals for under $200 though?

Wow, Steam actually got some of my money today. A whole $1.48. You go Steam, you go.

Napolean: Total War - Heroes of the Napoleanic Wars DLC
Napolean: Total War - Imperial eagle Pack DLC
and the free Skyrim HD Texture Pack if that counts.

Bought Risen 2 from gamersgate. Now there is a count down timer before I can get my key? WTF? I paid for this? uhm? yeah? Also, credit cards through moneybookers is now gone. It was there when I bought Enchantress near the beginning of the holidays. I used it versus Paypal so I miss it now thats its gone. No doubt both of these new additions/subtractions is post Bethesda snaffuu.

Hmm..

grabbing a couple of pieces of CK II DLC I need. .98 Total. Done!

I think I'm voting for Sleeping Dogs in case there's any useless DLC I want to talk myself into buying. I'm probably wrongfully assuming the DLC will also be 66% off if it wins.

Moneybookers probably cancelled their asses because they got too many complaints. If they don't watch it Paypal might too. I actually just used Moneybookers there last week but just checked now and sure enough, it's gone.

They seem to do this quite often, so it's not a stupid question, but.. Is there any DLC missing from the Dawn of War Franchise Pack?

Why would you want it on Steam when Origin is a much better client?

New Tomb Raider looks sexy good.
